The Worst Dressed Celebs at the Met Gala Over the Years

With the Met Gala just a few hours away, we are full of anticipation over what the A-listers will be wearing as they head down the carpet for what has been deemed the “Oscars of Fashion.”

However, while the event typically brings some major style statements, it’s also a night full of fashion mishaps as well. The costume theme of the ball can sometimes be difficult when it comes to styling, resulting in some seriously odd looks.

This year, especially, the theme of “China: Through the Looking Glass” raised a red flag due to fear over cultural insensitivity and appropriation. Jezebel even headlined an article “2015 Met Gala Will Probably Be an Asian-Themed Shitshow,” stating they “simply do not trust the majority of Met Gala attendees to handle this theme with tact and respect.”

Over the years we’ve seen the theme of the Met fall apart at the seams with celebrities either not grasping it at all or almost too literally dressing for the part. So in honor of our anticipation for what tonight shall bring, we’re taking a walk down memory lane and checking out some of the most questionable looks from Met Galas of years past.
